By on July 11, 2022 0

Phison is once again talking about its next Gen5 SSD controller, but the days of its Gen4 SSD controllers are not over… with the arrival of new PCIe 4.0 SSDs that will reach 7.2 GB/s for consumers and up to to 32 TB capacity for servers.


The company is working on PCIe Gen 5 E26, PCIe Gen 4 E25 and PCIe Gen 4 E20 products which include the Phison E26 ‘PS5026-E26’ PCIe Gen 5 SSD controller which will usher in the high speeds of 13 GB/sec (13,000 MB/ sec) that we saw teased not too long ago. Phison teased its E26 controller pumping into an AMD Zen 4 compatible X670E motherboard at an insane 12.5GB/sec.

Phison’s key upcoming solutions were discussed in a recent annual report release, including:

  • The The PS5025-E25 controller is a PCIe Gen4 SSD with an external DRAM design and a maximum performance of 7200MB/s, which is the best choice for extremely fast gamers.
  • The PS5020-E20 PCIe Gen4 Enterprise SSD controller will have a maximum support capacity of 32TB and will support special functions in enterprise-grade applications. It will be the most suitable choice for server system integrators.
  • Next-gen performance. PS5026-E26 PCIe Gen5 SSD controller will reach 13000MB/s, and it will be a flagship product in the PC market.

We’ll see the launch of Phison’s next-generation “PS5026-E26” PCIe Gen 5 E26 SSD controller later this year, ready for next-gen Intel and AMD processors, as well as PCIe 5.0-capable motherboards. Intel’s upcoming 700-series chipset, led by flagship Z790, will handle your PCIe 5.0 SSD speeds, just like AMD’s upcoming 600-series chipset left behind by flagship X670E + X670 has already been tested with Phison Controller’s new PCIe Gen 5 E26 ‘PS5026-E26’ SSD.

We’ve already seen APACER announce the world’s first PCIe 5.0 SSD, delivering blazing 13GB/s read speeds. APACER’s upcoming NVMe PCIe Gen 5 SSDs will push 13GB/sec read and 12GB/sec write, all for next-gen consumer storage needs.

Phison isn’t the only one with PCIe 5.0 SSD controllers, with competitors from Samsung, Silicon Motion, KIOXIA and many more with their own Gen5 SSD controllers on the way.
